Description
Knots Zoo is a Unicode typeface family. If you are testing the sample text, you can use the ligatures: Just type any combination of the five structural letters "HIBOX" in groups of four. Each letter will draw an edge (going clockwise, starting at the top of the character, so: Top, Right, Bottom, Left) - and represents a different edge to the knotwork, where H for "Head" I for "Straights", B for "Beak", O for nothing, and X for "Twists". For example, try typing "oboooooh" The characters use the Box Drawings Code Page U+2500 through U+257F in a creative manner, which allows for the analysis and representation of celtic knotwork. There is no 'empty' character in the Box Drawings Page, so I have used U+2573 for that purpose. The Zoomorphs (animal-like ornaments) are directly accessible in the U+E100 to U+E600 Private Use Area, However, they are also available as ligatures, such that a knot may easily be typed out on any text editor that supports ligatures. Full instructions (and working code in Python), as well as the iOS installer, is available on https://github.com/MrBenGriffin/Knot Apart from this minor deviations the glyphs, although apparently different, match the purpose of Box Drawings Characters semantically and syntactically. The zip file includes sample images, text, and example c++ source code for generating complex knot patterns. Note that this work took a lot of time to develop. The work is shared under the OpenSIL and the copyleft GPL3.0 license. You have a perpetual license to use the font as it is, but if you believe in kudos, then it's always a bonus to be credited.
